Merely following your lead, Ernie, of crediting him with all the good tings done by the Labour Governments he was a member of, but I guess success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan.
RIP Tony Benn
I haven't made any comment concerning whether his influence was good or bad.
I'm merely challenging your assertion that he was an ineffectual politician.
50 years as an MP of a major political party and several posts as a government minister, including cabinet minister, suggests otherwise. Most people who enter politics are unlikely to match that record.
I suspect that your dismissive attitude has more to do with your own personal political views than any real honest assessment.
A life well lived.
The Thatcherite train and Ali G clips will form next Friday's Sixth Form assembly. Theme will be heroes.
